We have been using the new translations at weekday Masses for little while now, just so Sunday next I am used to them and we have a few people trained to make the new responses, so during the week I am just going to put the loose page of the old Missal Propers out and the little paperback interim Missal.
Maybe I might put the old Missal out somewhere under a black pall.
It marks the end of an era, I suspect someone will offer the "old Mass" at 3.25pm on the third Sunday at some forsaken felt bannered country church for a few elderly sandalled hobnob eating tamborinistas.
Just a note on translation, we had in England for the first reading, "You have seduced me, and I let myself be seduced". Americans had, "You have duped me...". I'd prefer being "seduced" than "duped". Yuk!
